I have been using Movable Type as my primary blogging software for few years. And this September, I have upgraded to the latest version of Movable Type: Movable Type 4. So far, I like it alot! It works for me, that’s the most important point. I do not want to bring other blogging applications into debate here. But, it’s more about my personal experience with a blogging applicaton called Movable Type.
Movable Type 4 (again) comes with many great improvements and it’s very feature-rich. I already listed some features I like. If you want to read the completed and detailed features just head to Movable Type 4 features list.
It has been a month since Movable Type 4 came to public for the first time. But, I still see many MT-powered blogs running on MT 3.x. Sometime, I have this question: Is it safe to upgrade to Movable Type 4? The shortest answer will be “Yes!”, but in some other circumtances, “May be” or “May be not”. Well, I upgraded without problems.
So, I am thinking of writing some articles about upgrading to Movable Type 4. I know there are already many tutorials out there. I will write from my perspectives and I hope they are useful. I will write about these topics:
- Initial steps before upgrading — Things to consider before upgrading, so that you do not break your Movable Type.
- Upgrading — A step-by-step tutorial.
- Configuring the new Movable Type 4 — Things to do after you have your blog upgraded.
- Working with Movable Type 4 — Getting the most from Movable Type. I will write some basic tutorial on how to use the new features in Movable Type 4.
